. they are finding lot of excuses for why things went wrong. they say hurricane sandy caused romney momentum. they say conservatives never liked romney. but this one takes the cake. former political guru, karl rove, says president obama suppressed the vote. amazing. but who's delivering those harsh doses of reality? none other than chris christie. here's what he told reporters when they asked him if he talked to president obama about his big election victory. >> we didn't have a political strategy discussion. i said congratulations on your win, mr. president, and he said thank you, governor, and then we went on to business. >> now, we know chris and the president have been in regular contact, coordinating storm relief. still, it's very nice that christie congratulated the president by phone. but did he give romney a call maybe a shoulder to cry on? >> we sent e-mails to each other yesterday afternoon but we have not spoken but we exchanged e-mails yesterday. >> they exchanged e-mails? the man that romney chose to give the keynote address at the republican national convention has only been in

sandy. >> i thought that the ceo of pbh told an amazing story. a gigantic number of stores were taken out by sandy and yet he still was very confident about the numbers. i will say -- i've been very negative about jcpenney and stocks not doing anything, he did say pointblank that jcpenney had a really good, really good black friday. >> really? >> i want you to remember, jcpenney is going big using a heritage brand that had plus seven comp number. i have to point it out. i've been negative on jcpenney. what he said was he has seen some acceleration of sales there. i don't know if that means profits. >> how narrow is that in terms of their channels and does it -- as we watch jcpenney shares reversed on your remarks just now. >> knight capital reversed on your remarks. >> my remarks were based on something that was happening. >> that shows you that people watch this show more than -- i think it's emblematic -- i was in jcpenney recently. i bought a really nice hat. for weather like we had yesterday. a lot of what's happened at jcpenney is to embrace the brands not unlike what macy's has
of things. sandy continues to make me feel these numbers are too difficult. i find them unfathomable. the speech is about way too much unemployment and very unfathomable in terms of the actual destruction. you got numbers from two different governors. they are unusually low. i don't trust any number during this period. >> especially the number we'll get a week from today which estimates for nonfarm are not that good. 75 maybe. sandy will continue to ring in our ears for the next few weeks. >> and then i believe you're going to get when you get supplies rebuilt and enough bricks and enough lumber. did you see that lumber hit a six-year high yesterday. >> wow. >> copper. a lot of people talking about short buy on copper. everyone saying it's about china. a lot of copper comes from scrap and the scrap in the northeast where there's a huge amount of copper, it's extraordinary. a lot of equipment is stalled. >> think of the copper wires here downtown eroded because of exposure to salt water that need to be replaced. >> when i hear the things that have been thrown away, the 500,000 cases o
to third quarter gdp on thursday. here with what to watch for including effects from superstorm sandy is steve liesman. >> good interview on blackberry. a week to pay attention to the data. it will be affected by hurricane sandy making it difficult to figure out underlying momentum. gdp is not one of the data points. we put an asterisk next to data potentially affected by sandy. some worry that markets won't see through sandy effects and could walk away with a bearish look. there's durable goods potential effect there down 1.3% after a surge the prior month. consumer confidence, probably not. new home sales certainly in the northeast have potential. moving on to thursday. jobless claims. definite potential there and pending home sales. not gdp. this game at the end of the quarter or after the quarter had ended. now let's look at jobless claims data here. do we have that? i think we do. there we go. there's hurricane sandy. hurricane katrina. you can see it's following a very, very similar pattern there and the expectation is that it will come down again on thursday to 390,000. one mor

sales today, not great. maybe sandy affected even though the government said it wasn't. the economy's okay. it may be more of a 2% plus economy in the fourth quarter than is being given credit on the street. it's not gang busters. the question has been for a long time -- by the way, there's some headlines from the beige book. you can see it really did affect the northeast, new york, and new jersey especially. so we'll see some of that in the data in the months ahead. we'll be seeing some rebuilding going on. you know, i would not make a call here on the economy, scott, to say go ahead and invest in the economy. after the fiscal cliff everything is fine. i think there's a reason for cautious optimism, but i don't think there's a reason to think it's going to go gang busters. >> we saw harry reid speak yesterday. the market moves when we see different comments out of washington. we saw it again today on this perception that was actually positive commentary. our bar has gotten pretty low. we see stocks move around a lot. what about interest rates? are they responding as much? >> well,
and then hurricane sandy happened. talk about him. >> he is one of the most popular republican governors in the country but a lot of republicans nationally a little annoyed at him for embracing president obama in the wake of hurricane sandy and for not campaigning with mitt romney in that final week of the presidential campaign. a big thing to look at to see how healthy the republican party is whether they embrace chris christie's brand of center right, reformist type republicanism or whether they criticize him and say he is not conservative enough for the party. the republicans need to have a big tent to compete in future elections and chris christie is one of the rising stars. a test of how big the party's tent is will be how much they connect back with kris tie in the future. >> third on the to-do list, encourage steve king to stay in the house. he is a republican congressman from iowa and a tea party favorite. why urge him to stay in the house? >> he is a long time congressman from iowa but not -- in the senate race in the state is up in 2014 and he is thinking about running. the pro
number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u

losses caused by sandy, one stands out this week. superstorm sandy wreaked havoc on the ali forney center, the largest organization of its kind serves more than 1,000 highly vulnerable lgbt youth annually with access to showers, beds, hot meals and mental and physical health services. our foot soldier this week, carl siciliano, ali foreany's executive director and founder knows it's a safe place for these kids. he spent the day before the storm preparing for the city-wide shutdown. he directed the youth to emergency storm shelters, he told us "they didn't provide all the services we did but we knew at least they'd be safest there." carl didn't expect the devastation that hit his own cozy but highly functional 1200 square foot center. four days after the storm he was finally able to get inside. and what he found was four feet of water. all of the computers, medical and food supplies were destroyed. the space carl had made an essential escape for the most vulnerable of new york's youth, 90% of whom carl says are young people of color, that space it was deemed uninhabitable. through a simple
with a statement at the top saying sandy reduced industrial production output by nearly 1 percentage point so the bottom line is the industrial production would have been above expectations were it not for sandy. and a lot of people took a while for them to read that. i think that helped turn the markets around a little bit right now. elsewhere, the sectors hit hard by concerns of the fiscal cliff on the downside today. it's been an ugly week for industrial trust. down 6% since the election. the association met this week in san diego. had an annual meeting and my understanding is fairly downbeat. a little bit of concern. even though the fundamentals of real estate doing well. supply is muted. capital is cheap. in theory, not a bad time to be in the real estate business. utilities down more than 6%. they were hurt by sandy a little bit. the northeast ones. there's a one-month chart. finally today, a positive print on the overall utilities but a rocky road for them and same situation with telecom. they're the most affected by the fiscal cliff issues. telecom down about 5.5% since the election b
is a lie that hurricane sandy won the election for barack obama. it may be he was emboldened by a crisis he had to deal with, but he certainly came alive in the last week in a way he hadn't been throughout the campaign, certainly wasn't in the debates or the convention. i saw the old obama. i saw him four years ago and he was doing that thing on the stump and he was emotional, he was passionate. that in the end was a connection to people i just don't think mitt romney ever established. >> no. well, i think people needed to see it so badly from president obama and that's really the first debate, what went so abysmally wrong that he didn't have his head in the game and mitt romney did. had it not been for that debate there would have been a more clear-cut definition of some sort that he was going to have this kind of sweeping win that he did have, then you look at what happened and he had this week before the election step up, show leadership, this horrible tragedy and remind everyone that we're all americans and we need to be there for one another. >> i think i just don't think the hurricane
